TU Delft TV / The TU Delft team is working on a sustainable type of concrete made from waste products: geopolymer concrete. Faculty of Civil Engineering & Geosciences.
The geopolymer team is researching a type of concrete that uses waste and by products instead of cement as a raw material. This material is called geopolymer concrete, and is made by mixing different industrial byproducts. The hardened concrete has comparable or even better properties than traditional concrete. Already the theory has been put into practice: a geoconcrete canoe has been built, a cantilevered bench, and a bridge is up next.
